Road to Látrabjarg

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Road to Látrabjarg
Road to Látrabjarg
The crinkled coastline of Iceland's Westfjords means there are no straight lines from point A to point B. But the sights are worth the endless zigzagging.
We drove out to the Látrabjarg cliffs (I'm on their slope, in this composition) and the view back over the way we came was remarkable, for the 'layered'
look of the fingers of land jutting out, one after the other, enclosing the numerous fjords of the area. The dirt road leads back to our hotel, about 10
miles east. Látrabjarg is the western most tip of Iceland and thus of Europe; Greenland sits about 275 miles west.

Fascinating "crinkled" coastline view augmented by your vision-engendering prose. All good!

Amazing view and perfectly captured. Your trip to Iceland must have been so amazing. (Yet another place I will never get to go! LOL) I'm glad you were able to see this beautiful place and share it with us. Amazing!

Thanks so much, folks! I need a life coach to sort out my life with the goal of moving to Iceland... or at least, being able to visit twice a year, forever... ;)

I like the layers and the curves! Some day I hope to get to travel by Iceland when I visit Sweden. It looks like a very fascinating landscape. Congratulations on your finalist, Christopher!

Thank you both, Eivor & Susan!
Eivor - Iceland was simply the most spectacular place I've ever visited... I fell in love almost immediately. We put about 1,300 miles on our rental car in 10 days, and there's just so much more we didn't get to see.
If you are interested, my BP Deluxe gallery has an album of just my Iceland shots - www.chrisbudny.com and you'll see a link to "Iceland" right on the home page.
